Product Details

AKA Leuconostoc Oenos. Fresh liquid cultures of L. oenos ER1A and EY2D provide rapid and complete malic acid to lactic acid reduction to balance and soften wines. ER1A and EY2D perform well in conditions of low pH and cool cellaring. Typical conditions of high wine acidity can be improved by reducing the harsh, sharp malic acid in the wine to the softer and smoother lactic acid. Other flavor improvements including vanilla and buttery notes can be anticipated. Natural occurring malic acid bacteria on fruit may be of inferior quality or quantity to complete malo-lactic fermentation. Vinter Choice™ malo-lactic cultures are suitable of pH 2.9 or greater and cellar temperatures as low as 55° F

Great Job
I used this to reduce the acid level in a wild grape wine and it worked great. I will defiantly use again.

Is this a yeast strain or a malic acid addition? Want to use for making hard cider and was wondering if this would work. Only other malic acid here and tannins in it and I don't want to add those at this time.

BEST ANSWER: This is not yeast, but instead is a bacterial culture that converts malic acid to lactic acid. Add a yeast strain to make the alcohol and the malo lactic culture is used in conjuction to convert malic acid to lactic acid if needed.
